1xN Broad Wavelength Mini Optical Switch – Fiber-Fiber™

All Wavelengths, Bidirectional, High-Power

The Fiber-FiberTM Series 1xN Optical Switch connects optical channels by directly coupling a pair of fibers without coating. This achieved by using a precision mini motor. Latching capability preserves the selected optical path after the drive signal has been removed. The compact FF series switches have passed space application qualification.  Agiltron’s unique design offers low insertion loss covering a very broad spectral band from 400 to 5000 nm with various fiber core size from 100um to 1500um. The switch is ideal for sensor and spectroscopy applications with bidirectionality.

The driving circuit has interfaces with a computer through RS232, USB, or GPIB option.
